Can I send you something? There's a brony at school I was pretending to be friends with so I could mess with him, anyway his mother bought him one of those absurdly expensive fan made plushies, I told him I was going through a tough time and he let me borrow it. I was going to destroy it and give it back but it was a Rarity and I thought you might appreciate it better than a gross brony. Do you accept gifts?

… Well on the one hand it’s Rarity and literally my one weakness it adding things to my Rarity collection…

On the other hand though that guy’s mom probably paid through the nose for that plushie (fan made plushies are justifiably expensive) and I’d feel bad for her dropping that colossal amount of coin. (Though I’d feel worse if it was destroyed because the plushie maker has their work destroyed (and Rarity’s not easy to make with those gorgeous curls) AND she still has her money wasted and there’s the fact that I don’t know the guy you took it from so he could be the grossest brony alive and I’d still feel at least a teensy bit bad because I don’t know him so I don’t know how badly he’s gonna take having his plushie disappear)

So it’s for that reason and the fact that I don’t feel comfortable giving out my address that I have to say no. I mean if you are dead set on destroying it and you come off anon we could talk further about it because honestly if it comes down to it I’ll take it if I can keep you from wrecking it (I can’t in good conscience let someone’s hard work be destroyed especially if it’s best pony and … yeah I also wouldn’t mind having a Rarity plush of my own I feel selfish admitting that but I won’t lie and say that if I do accept it’s only out of a sense of artistic martyrdom because that would make me feel worse than admitting my vices)

But I’d rather have you come off anon and talk with me about it first okay?

This anon is disgusting.

You don’t like bronies? Fine.
But deliberately manipulating someone for the express purpose of taking something valuable from them to destroy it, that’s low.

In fact, I’d rate you lower than some of the worst people I’ve dealt with for that kind of behaviour.

You should be ashamed of yourself. That act isn’t brave, smart or funny. It’s pure cowardice. But, you know what anon, if you were to destroy it, and it was to get out that you had, I’d put money down that the brony fandom would step up and replace it for him. Because contrary to you, the majority of the fandom is willing to help others.
Unlike yourself, who would steal someone’s prized possessions for a quick ego boost, and petty “that’ll teach him” stab.

Shut the fuck up about vaccinations. Not everyone has to have them, not everyone believes in them. Uneducated fuck.

You know, my homie and secret best friend Neil deGrasse Tyson said it best….

This isn’t an issue of belief or should even be up for discussion. It’s not a debate- like gravity or that the Earth revolves around the Sun isn’t up for debate. It’s a fact, whether or not you like it. Sorry bro.

And any ‘educated fuck’ knows that vaccines are necessary and everyone who can have them should have them.

Have a lovely day, sugar. 

Actually there’s a lot of research and knowledge supporting the fact that vaccines are NOT necessary. It is simply another thing that today’s health system is super big on, just like hospital births and c-sections. And a lot of people actually have long term and short term complications from getting vaccines. Ahem.

Dang guys, you thought I didn’t check my activity log every now and then? Because I knew shit like this would pop up. And, I just finished my block exam and am feeling fiesty.

Actually you’re wrong. That ‘research’ is either completely fabricated OR grossly misinterprets the data OR uses shitty research techniques to get the data they want- all which are grossly unethical, in case you’re curious. I’ve got slides from a recent lecture on vaccines (aka why I am so fired up about this nonsense). You can check out the citations on each slide if you don’t believe me… something unsurprisingly missing from literally every anti-vaccine comment I’ve gotten and website that I have visited. Show me your sources, honey, and if you do, I will blow them out of the water because not a single one stands up to current scientific research standards.

There are however tomes and tomes of research for the safety end efficacy of vaccines. Don’t believe me? Look at a simple google scholar search.

So! Here we go!

Holy shit, it’s almost like vaccines SAVE SOCIETY MONEY. In fact, they give money back to society, along with the other programs indicated by red arrows. Which would be really weird for something that is just a healthcare fad like c-sections and hospital births.

And most people have no complications for getting vaccines, and if they do, most of them are short term. In fact, it is devilishly hard to prove an adverse effect was because of a vaccine. Why? Because it’s how we’re wired. We falsely see connections and causes where there are none (called a type 1 error; you are rejecting a true null hypothesis). People are more likely to attribute an adverse health event to a shot- even if that shot is the placebo and the numbers are just the background rate for whatever health event in the population.

And here is a graph showing the sample sizes necessary to prove that an adverse event is caused or related to a vaccine.

You know what, it was a really good lecture and I’m going to share more more relevant slides in case any one else feels like contradicting me.

These slides show the public health impact of vaccines. Note the differences between the historical peak and post-vaccine era deaths columns. Because saving literally thousands of lives is totally a conspiracy you should beware of.

And this is why herd immunity is so important! See how high it has to be for measles? Guess what we’re seeing outbreaks of thanks to anti-vaxxers? Don’t forget that one of the deadly complications of measles is SSPE.

Look how Hepatitis A infections in older adults when down after kids started getting immunized. Shocking! Could vaccines be… good for …. everyone????

Ahem.

And in case you’re having trouble reading all that science, you can get it delivered to you in a sound and video format only 1 minute and 43 seconds long by Penn and Teller
